The Best of the 20th Century,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century: A Social Justice Hall of Fame (Kindle Edition)
This is just simply a terrific book. It is a series of short biographical notes on the 100 most important progressives of the 20th century. But that really doesn't do justice to the book. Reading these stories gives you a really great understanding of and appreciation for the leaders of the progressive movement. It seems that today, few people remember, must less understand, the leadership roles and sacrifices these men and women undertook in making the United States what it is today. If your history classes in high school and college skipped this important part of our history (and most did!), then you owe it yourself to buy this book and become educated about a period in our history that the powers that be would very much like us all to forget.
